For one reason or another I’ve never tried customizing my own pair of Nike IDs until now. I was always a bit put off by the wait time and I suppose I was waiting to get inspired. A few weeks ago I really wanted another pair of Air Max 90’s so I pulled the trigger on this design. The design is inspired by the Air Max 90 Infrareds. My goal is to make the whole shot lighter and more minimal feeling.
I basically took the parts on the shoe which were originally black and switched them out for white. The color on the IDs doesn’t exactly match that of the infrareds and I wasn’t able to keep the red on the actual soles. Other than that, I’m pretty happy with the way these came out and excited to wear them constantly. The quality on the IDs are passible but I was a little disappointed with some of the stitching (particularly around the plastic part that reads Air Max). Definitely enjoyed the actual process of bringing the sneaker from concept to reality and I really hope that they put Air Max 95’s back on the Nike ID website.
